Preview | November 12

Manchester City-Brentford

Can Erling Haaland leave his mark?

Man City have won three consecutive Premier League matches and will attempt to defend their streak at the Etihad against Brentford. A positive result would help City to jump ahead of Arsenal and move up into the 1st spot in the table. Man City should feel that type of performance is within their grasp, as they defeated the Bees 2-0 in their last league meeting.

Man City | WWWLW | 2nd | Top Scorer: E. Haaland (18)

Man City arrive in scintillating form. They have won their last 3 matches. Man City are one of the most attacking teams in the league and the stats back this up. Their average xG (expected goals) of 2.1 is the highest in the league. Kevin De Bruyne will be looking to keep up his fantastic creative work after recording 25 passes into the box in his last 5. Key goal scorer Erling Haaland will be looking to keep it going after scoring 4 goals in their last 5 matches.

Brentford | DDLDW | 11th | Top Scorer: I. Toney (8)

The table isn't looking great for Brentford fans. Following some poor results, they've dropped down to 11th. The Bees have lost the possession battle 45% to 55% and the shot battle 45 to 83 over their last 5 matches. Brentford will hope Mathias Jensen's creativity can help following recent struggles. He's been their top setup man this season with three assists (12th in the EPL).

Man City-Brentford Prediction: 3-0

Man City have shown enough recently to make this a comfortable day's work.

Did you know? Brentford's away record this season stands at 0 wins, 3 losses, and 4 draws.

Can Man City get another impressive win? Will the Bees extend their streak of draws? PokerStars Sports has hundreds of markets, so you can find your perfect bet on the big match.
